The gallery doors are open to a glorious day in the city as we install Barry Hodgson's solo exhibition Newfoundland, PEI & Ontario.  Hodgson's 2011 solo opens Thursday, June 2nd.  A reception with the artist present will be held at the gallery on Saturday, June 4th between 2 and 4pm.  Last month's memorable Sara Sniderhan opening was drenched in a lovely quality of light.  Our congratulations to Sniderhan as My Name is was her first solo with the gallery.  We enjoyed discussing with all of you Sniderhan's career and her approach to art.

Reception with the Artist: Saturday, 4 June 2-4pm


The wind helped me paint this one.  ~ Barry Hodgson


Hodgson is most mindful of Canada's rich legacy of Canadian landscape painters.  Drawing from a pure, minimal approach comparable to that of David Milne and Barker Fairley -- Barry Hodgson sets out to capture an immediate impression of the land.

Rendering the character and mood over observed beauty, leads to a remarkable purity in Barry Hodgson's works.  The interpretation, the moment, is chronicled by what is seen, paired equally with what is felt and known about the great Canadian fact.


Hodgson's new works range in scale and media.  His canvases and boards are painted in oil, and the series also features works on paper in Hodgson's signature mixture of ink, pastel, conté and/or watercolour.  


Please visit our website to preview a cross section of the new works, as well as fantastic photographs of Barry Hodgson at work in the field:
